Rangers academy boss Craig Mulholland has revealed that Frank McParland is currently in the middle of building a scouting network to span the whole of the world.

Gers boss Mark Warburton recently tempted McParland from his role as sporting director at English Championship side Burnley to take up the post of head of recruitment at Ibrox.

Rangers' scouting network has been decimated in recent years, but now McParland is rebuilding it and Mulholland says the former Liverpool chief scout is working hard.

Mulholland was asked in a Twitter Q&A whether there are any plans for a world scouting network to attract the best players and coaches to Ibrox.

And the academy chief replied: "Frank McParland is working hard on this just now. Priority [is] always [the] best players in Scotland first."


However, Mulholland feels there are already a number of talented players in the youth set-up at Rangers and is confident that given the right support, they will blossom.

"No question [we have talent at Auchenhowie]. If we can get the infrastructure around the players correct [then] we will produce some exciting talent", Mulholland replied.

Rangers boss Warburton is a firm advocate of blooding youngsters and has regularly found space for the likes of Jordan Thompson and Ryan Hardie in the senior set-up this season.
